CARBIDE GRIT BLADES
Carbide Grit blades are specifically designed to cut hard, brittle, and fibrous materials. Depending on your needs, Simmons can provide Carbide Grit blades with both continuous and gulleted edges.
Continuous edge Carbide Grit blades are entirely coated with carbide grains along the edge, whereas gulleted edge Carbide Grit blades feature an interrupted edge, which creates segments coated in carbide grains.
To further diversify this offering, Carbide Grit blades are available in two grit options:
- If you’re looking for a finer finish when cutting thin or fragile material that chips easily, we recommend selecting the medium grit option.
- If you’re looking for a fast-cutting blade to saw through thicker material and metal, you’ll want to choose the medium-coarse or coarse grit option.
Carbide Grit blade applications:
- Ceramic tiles
- Cast iron
- Concrete reinforced pipe
- Hardened tool steel
- Sheet metal
- Wall board
- Wire reinforced hose
Consistently delivering high-quality blades has been key to Simmons’ success throughout the years. As part of our reliable welds guarantee, if a Simmons blade breaks at the weld, just send it back to us. While we cannot guarantee that we will replace Carbide Grit blades, we’ll evaluate the issue and reweld the blade if possible.
We stand behind our workmanship, and even when we’re not at fault for blade issues, we frequently invest in analyzing the cause of the blade’s failure in order to educate our customers and help them correct the source of the issue in their facility.
Carbide Grit blades with a continuous edge are coated with thousands of carbide grains. The facets of the grains create an extreme number of cutting edges, guaranteeing an aggressive cut while still leaving a smooth surface finish.
Carbide Grit blades with a gulleted edge are still coated with carbide grains. However, the gulleted edge offers greater penetration and flexibility than the continuous edge. Additionally, bandsaws with smaller pulleys or wheels will experience longer blade life with gulleted edge bands.
